I agree, CheeseMan. For instance, ventriloquism and soliloquy are obviously still being used, both in writing and in conversation.

I think by modern, it means not ye olde English, as in 'do as thou wilt' or 'ne'er' and 'thee'. Not as in all these new words you young wipper-snappers use these days. Yeah, I said wipper-snappers. And JaLacaob, how misspelling words slang? More like laziness. Or pure idiocy.

JaLacaob: you realize thats a crappy excuse for not wanting to spell things right, yes?

and im thinking these words arent modern english if nobody really uses them.

I could see several of those words being used. Since I take latin, I can see how many of them work directly off of latin like the rest of english does, making it not so weird to me.

Scotchy. I imagine they probably seem foreign because they take the form of traditional english spelling (i.e. UK English with all the superfluous letters). Also English is essentially a mixture of French and some low country germanic dialect close to Flemish, so some words will seem foreign.

Being taken from the 17th and 18th centuries I would imagine the differences between English in the US and UK would not have diverged too much at that time.

Then again, you still had incredibly diverse regional dialects throughout the UK then and presumably elsewhere, which is where I'd imagine many of these words would have come from.
